FIRST LOOK: Mr Burns at the Almeida Theatre

It's the end of everything in contemporary America. A future without power. But what will survive?

Mr Burns asks whether the stories we tell make us the people we are, explodes the boundaries between pop and high culture and, when society has crumbled, imagines the future of America's most famous TV family.


Due to popular demand performances of Mr Burns have been extended to Saturday 26 July. Tickets for the extension period are now on sale. See almeida.co.uk for further information.
